Does cosmetic surgery offer health benefits?
There has been recent discussion concerning whether or not liposuction can induce health benefits for your body
Here at Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine we take distinct interest in advancements in the health side of cosmetic procedures. While we know that cosmetic enhancement procedures can offer psychological enhancements as well as physiological, we also need to consider the health implications or benefits of various procedures when considering them. Recently in the news there has been a lot of discussion about the health implications of different types of breasts implants, and there have also been recent studies delving into the possible health benefits of liposuction surgery.
PIP (Poly Implant Prothèse) implants are now regarded as unsafe
According to French regulations (where the implants were made) the provider of the implants utilised unapproved material to construct the breast implants. It has been estimated that approximately 12,300 PIP implants were sold in Australia, however Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine has never even performed one PIP implant procedure. If you fear you may have PIP implants from another cosmetic surgery provider and want them removed, our surgeons can perform revision surgery to remove the implants and insert some safer alternatives which have been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia.
We also offer the completely natural fat transfer option for breast enhancement
As with most things that we put into our bodies: the more natural the better. This is why Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine is proud to offer breast enhancement via fat transfer, which utilises fat from your own body to create an augmented chest area. While our implants are very safe, fat transfer is a popular method for people who are wary of foreign objects inside of their body. During the fat transfer procedure one of our surgeons can remove fat cells from a fat deposit in your own body (for example in your abdomen or buttocks) and then reinject the fat into your breasts. This is a great way to hit two birds with one stone as you’ll be able to decrease fat in an undesirable area and enlarge your breasts for a more feminine physique. This is the perfect option for patients who are prone to allergic reaction or are worried about the side effects of more heavily invasive procedures.
Liposuction is said to improve your health
Liposuctions are performed to create slender curves for the female body and remove fatty deposits for male physique. Recent studies have discovered that the benefits of liposuction may be more than ‘skin deep’. According to this study it was determined by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons that liposuction can actually lower triglycerides levels twice as effectively as specialised cholesterol medication.
Cosmetic procedures can improve your overall mental health
Feeling confident and inspired by your own beautiful body can be a powerful tool for every aspect of your life. Feeling happy with your body can mean that you perform better at work due to increased confidence. Confidence can also help in your social life as it will assist you in working up the confidence to make new friends and network with people!
